My left hand is killing me right now. I thought I felt a slight pain in it this afternoon but went to hit range balls anyway. I was having a bad session so I may have hit an extra hundred or so in a fit of frustration.
I've been playing golf and working hard on my game for over 20 years now. But if I develop say a chronic wrist or hand problem or perhaps suffer a gruesome injury there obviously I'll be done with golf and all that work and progress will in many ways be for naught.
These are sobering thoughts that beg the question - am I in fact using my time on this doomed planet wisely?
I met a guy yesterday who just moved to Queens from essentially fly-over country. He and his beautiful wife came to start a church here in New York. They have no money really, no other work lined up, they've two of their own and two adopted foster kids whom they homeschool,...

The more I ruminate upon it, the more I'm tempted to
It's probably time to man-up and see what we're made of. After all she and the kids (me too!) would be better off with her home than with
Would such an overt act of financial self-destruction be crazy? Most certainly....but no more outlandish than say homeschooling my kids!
Again, check out that book if you haven't already. I'll say it again - I'M ON MY THIRD RE-READ IN A YEAR! It would be too weak to call it, among many other labels, a self-help book. More accurately it's a treatise on modern day *self-propulsion*.
